The sounds of blues have delighted music fans for generations. Travellers who will be in the Toronto area this fall may wish to attend the 25th Annual Women's Blues Revue, featuring some remarkable local and international talent that specialize in this passionate musical genre.
On November 26th at the Massey Hall, six exceptional women of blues will join together to offer a unique take on this classic genre of music, says the event's website. Hosted by the Toronto Blues Society, guests are welcome to attend and immerse themselves in an evening of beautiful blues music. Singers such as Suzie Vinnick and Kat Danser will be paired with amazing trumpeters, drummers, bassists and pianists, all of which are women.
For two and a half decades, this event has brought the gifts of female blues singers, songwriters and musicians together to create one spectacular show. While enjoying the interesting attractions and entertainment options of Toronto, this celebration of blues may be the ideal way to spend an evening in this thrilling destination.
Massey Hall is a terrific venue to see some great acts in the Toronto area. Also in November, the venue will be welcoming guests such as Sting and William Shatner. Visitors to this city may wish to check out the hall's website for a list of other performances that are happening throughout the year.
Travellers enjoying various cities in Ontario can also catch some great live music in Canada's capital city. Les Brasseurs du Temps often hosts musical acts in their main dining room for patrons to enjoy over a delicious meal. The restaurant's website says that this establishment has been one of Ottawa's favourite places to dine and unwind for years. Visitors to the city should not miss sampling one of the eatery's on-site handcrafted beers, or perhaps ordering the L'Horloge, which encourages patrons to try a sample of each of their 12 micro brews.
While dining out at this fun restaurant in November, travellers may catch a performance by Serge Cote. This Quebec native will be accompanied by Veronique Turcotte on violin and Daniel Berriault on flute and bass to regale spectators with some wonderfully bluesy tunes.
Music can be found throughout Ontario, which travellers can partake in to make their exciting holiday in Ontario even better.
